About Jan Bolhuis
Joined December 2013
Hello, my name is Jan Bolhuis, I’m from The Netherlands and want to give you a short insight of who I am.

At this moment (2014) I’m 45 years old and am working as a senior salary benefits and compensation specialist at a multinational.

Before I went into the industrial life I joined the navy for almost 12 years but after being an instructor for three years and being very ambitious I decided to start with a study to create better chances.

This was in 1998. In 2000 I left the navy definitely and got my first job as a salary administrator. In the meantime I kept on going with some several studies and step by step I have realized my current job.

I'm still very very ambitious and am always in the learning curve. Because I like so many things, it's also my pitfall. And sometimes it still does.

My greatest wish is to be a full time online entrepreneur so that I can do the things I like. One of my great passion is sharing my knowledge. Especially about Excel (you know, the spreadsheet program of MS Office).

And now I have to look for some other niches.

My expectations are that WA will be the last community I'm dealing with because I have seen a lot of scam and was also involved with some of them.

Till so far I have a great feeling about this community and have had also a lot of great contacts.

My goal for the next few years is to keep more focused on a few things and to be less distracted so that I can realize the things I really want.

Besides a full time job it will not be an easy one but referring to Napoleon Hill, quitters never win and winners never quit.
Jan Bolhuis's Goals 3
Money Goals
Let a dream come true :) Here are my financial goals.

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?

As much as necessary to live an independent life without working for a boss. So an amount around 15 up to 20 K per month should be a very very good start. But in combination with my full time job 5K per month is also a good starting point

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?

30-40 K per month but in fact I would be ecstatic if I can pay all my bills, to pay off my mortgage and life a comfortable live. It would also be great if I earn so much money that I can share it by starting some charity projects.

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

This will always a step by step process. In the beginning it will be 1-3 hours per day because of my obligation to work at least 8 hours per day for my boss. If that will lead into some money so that I can work less for my boss, the available hours to invest will increase of course.

If you follow the training and build a quality website, you will see those results.

I want to stress this will take time to develop and build up your business. You will not see your financial goals right away.

I wish you the best. Debbie

Hey JAN...looks like you have made a realistic assessment of your financial goals. Soooo understand the 'working for a boss' scenario. I appreciate that you'd like to have enough in your ecstatic earnings to be able to start some charity projects. WOW! So with 1 to 3 hours a day you'll be on your way!!! Don't get lost in overwhelm. Take a break when you need to and just get right back into it. At least this is what I'm telling myself.

Goedemiddag Jan!
Leuk om hier weer eens een landgenoot te ontmoeten!
We have something in common: My goal is a also to be less distracted :)
And the saying of Napoleon Hill is more than true. I have his book:
"Think & grow Rich". I downloaded it years ago for free.
But: I have read a little bit of it. If I had practised what he learns, I think I would have been rich already.....:) Success to you!
Gegroet,
Warner

Hoi Jan, thanks for following me back. You are the only Dutch person on WA that I have found, so far. I'm Dutch too (ex Dutch East Indies), but have lived in Australia for a long time. My father was also in the Marine.
You have an impressive profile and I'm sure you'll do well here, also, I'm sure you picked up a few other tips from Napoleon Hill, besides never quitting. Good luck and best wishes in your endeavours!

Hi mackiejw, LOL no he isn't. But his roots come from the same state in The Netherlands as where I live (Groningen). Hopefully I will develop the same qualities in another business. online marketing (IM) for example :). Nice to meet you.
